Happy Reds birthday, Kevin Mitchell!


January 13, 1962

I first became aware of Kevin Mitchell as a slugging outfielder for the San Francisco Giants in 1989; prior to that he played for the Mets and Padres. He came to the Reds in 1993 via Seattle in exchange for Norm Charlton, and hit 55 dingers in Cincinnati in ’93, ’94, and ’96. The Reds sent him to Boston at the trade deadline in 1996, acquiring Brad Tweedlie and Roberto Mejia from the Red Sox. He later played for the Indians and A’s.
